Rolling Loud, the largest hip-hop festival in the country, really seems like the place to be if you want to deal with legal repercussions, as rappers Lil Wayne and Kodak Black both attended the music festival and ended up dealing with the police. The entire festival turned out to be a mess, actually. Sigh, I much prefer the zany Florida news stories.
The Miami Herald says that the police were really keeping themselves busy at Rolling Loud in Miami Gardens over the weekend. When Lil Wayne, who was scheduled to perform along with people like Cardi B, Travis Scott and Migos, got there, he was accosted by the police. Or something–he didn’t go into detail, but he pulled out at the last second (something he never does, because he’s the father of at least five hundred children).
and give you guys a great show. I will be at Story tonight for the afterparty and you kan katch me on tour with my bros Blink 182 this summer! ??

Lil Wayne just paid off $14 million to the government to clear his taxes–he’s not about to deal with legal trouble! He wasn’t going to have the police up in his business looking through his stuff, grilling him like he’s Tekashi69. The Miami police had no comment on the matter.
The Miami Herald also says that during the festival, Kodak Black found himself under arrest on Saturday night, after the Miami-Dade police got him on weapons charges. Now he is like Tekashi69.
Police confirm that Kodak got taken into custody before he could perform his set on Saturday. He was arrested at the stadium by the police from the Miami Northside Station, along with some federal agents from the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and with some US Marshals who spearheaded the investigation also tossed in for good measure.
The US Marshals gave a statement calling this an “extensive investigation” and said that Kodak would be booked into Miami’s Federal Detention Center. Which is something he’ll be used to as he was previously arrested last month for drug and weapons charges when he tried to cross the border from Canada into the US, and he also was arrested recently in Broward County on charges like grand theft, child neglect and marijuana possession, and (Jeeeez this guy has legal problems) he is also facing trial on rape allegations from a high-school student in South Carolina.
Three different legal departments coming in on you, Kodak? Pending rape trial? I hope you have a good lawyer. If not you better get one. Like a really good one. Not Kim Kardashian. But I think she could help Lil Wayne, though. Look what she did for Alice Johnson. Civil rights is clearly her passion and this can be her next fight in her and Kanye’s battle to save black people!
